There is no doubting that Katrina Kaif is one of the most sought-after names today in terms of live shows and stage performances. Ironically, it was the superstar’s abs that went on to make headlines at the IPL grand opening in 2016. She now returns to the IPL stage 2 years later, with an act that promises to leave viewers enthralled.
While details are under wraps for the moment, sources reveal that Katrina will have a 10-minute performance that closes the show. She is also rumoured to be performing to her blockbuster songs, including the recent Swag Se Swagat from Tiger Zinda Hai.
Katrina has been rehearsing for the show around the clock in the midst of her other film and brand commitments. There were also whispers of the star being one of the highest paid performers at the IPL finale that will take place on the 27th May.
Says a source, “ It was only last year that Katrina brought the house down at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Kochi as she performed at the opening ceremony of the Indian Super League (ISL). In 2016, she was part of the grand opening of the IPL season and everything from her dance moves to her super chiselled abs, went on to make headlines. It’s no surprise then that she’s one of the most sought-after names for sport league performances. The organizers are making every effort to raise the bar and all eyes are now on the closing ceremony to see what’s in store this year”.
